Grief Project.

Hi all!

I'm working on a little project that deals with grief, and I'm wondering if any readers out there would like to be involved.

It's not depressing, cross my heart!

I'm specifically looking for those who have experienced the *death of:

an infant (including through miscarriage)
an older child (toddler-adult)
a spouse
a sibling
a parent
a close friend
a fiancé
a close pet

*death could be from natural causes, illness, accident, suicide, unknown causes etc.

If you've experienced significant loss through death, and would like to help me with this project by answering just a couple of simple questions anonymously via email, please either comment below with your email address, or email me at natalienorton{at}gmail{dot}com.

Email subject: grief project and the type of loss you've experienced so I can categorize them in my email easily. For example, "Grief Project: infant, 10 weeks old" or "Grief Project: sibling, 21 years old" or "Grief Project: ectopic pregnancy."

Feel free to spread the word. :)Justify Full

I love you.

xx.

Hey Nat, I passed your word on to Stephanie, but here is also her blog. She has some articles she's written, and linked on the side of her blog with info that might also be helpful (how to treat a friend who has suffered a loss, etc). Just thought I would pass it on if it helps at all. www.adailyscoop.blogspot.com. She lost her baby girl at age 1 (if you need that for classification).

Ally said...

I would love to help. I had a full-term stillborn. She died a day before my scheduled delivery.

(Also, email me because I want you to help me with my foundation called "project hope". I started it specifically for families who lost a child...it's designed to take their first family picture after the loss..I wanted to put a face to grief and do a book about the hope. That life is still worth living, and there is hope to be found..anyway, I found that I read so many books on grief but none about hope..and I wanted to see someone who survived and found peace.

marlei said...

So much grief/sadness out there! I'll be part of it if my circumstances are significant enough. I was confirmed pregnant for 12 hours before I suffered severe pains and landed in ER with a ectopic pregnancy. It was my first pregnancy and very traumatic experience for me, but most people dismissed it and avoided the whole issue with me.
Also, my beloved little dog died at the grand old age of 16 in 2002 and I've never been able to get another pet again because it still hurts so much. And I've lost 3 grandparents, one of whom lived with us for over 20 years.

I have had a missed miscarriage (meaning my baby's heartbeat suddenly stopped).And my ever dearest grandma died just a couple of months ago.And she is really dear to me (her death was a different story)and until now I think I am still trying to cope with. I am at peace because I know where she is now, but the cause of her death still troubles me.

Just message me on face book if you want me to answer some questions for your project.

Thank you.

Deborah said...

My husband & I went through several miscarriages, my son was a twin and we lost the other baby around 5 months. I really dealt with a lot of grief through those years. However I was never alone and GOD really revealed himself to me. I look at my son and I am truly grateful for what an amazing gift he is. When we were around 7 months pregnant with him our doctors were concerned his head was not fully formed at the neck and was not connected. It turned out he was fine, he is the survivor and testament of all we went thru!

bpatterson@pattersonconstruction.com
I am so sorry about Gavin. My heart has ached for you. I can relate to pretty much everything that you write about in your blog concerning your loss. Things do get better. The pain never goes away. I am not sure if you just get use to it or what, but it does get easier to live with. 9 years later I still find myself in tears at times. Thank Heavens we have the gospel, families are forever. I don't know how anybody can survive the loss of a child without that knowledge. My love and prayers to you and your sweet family.

I lost two friends who accepted me unconditionally. 6 years ago, I lost my friend to cancer. She was the one person I could always do to and she would not judge me. (except for Jesus). This past summer, I lost my weimaraner, Rio, to heart failure at age 11 1/2. I know this is not as signicant as losing a child or parent, but my Rio was my other friend who always loved me. No matter what. I would be glad to help.

I have had a good share of grief from the death of my absolute best friend, and other family members. I also miscarried my first baby at 3 months.
But I also want to tell you about a blog I enjoy reading because it is so touching and honest and open and raw. She is a photographer in Australia and lost her little girl three years ago. She really is inspiring. her site address is http://www.sheyerosemeyerphotography.com/blog/ You might already know about her, but when I read this post it made me think of her blog and I thought I would pass it along.
Hope you are doing ok today! Grief is a totally individual and tricky thing!

I lost two sons mid-pregnancy (21 weeks and 18 weeks, both to cord problems) and two siblings (sister at 10 months and brother at 32 years). Plus another early pregnancy loss. Life's been all about death lately!

I used to live in Laie, too. Wish I could be there right now - that would cheer me up!

I'd be happy to help. I've had 3 miscarriages, all under 8 weeks. I've also lost close pets.

Hi Natalie,
Our sweet little baby Isabella passed away in October. Two weeks before delivery (a completely healthy pregnancy)they couldn't find a heartbeat. I am really interested in the project you are doing. Having a child pass away is the hardest journey to be given. I appreciate, and relate to the words you express in your blog. shaynjas@cox.net

I lost a sister suddenly at the age of 31. that was almost five years ago and its still hard to believe she is not here.

Kim Sandberg Turner said...

Daughter Jenni was due in three weeks to give birth to our first grandson. My mother, her beloved grandmother, had a heart attack and only had hours to live. We called Jenni about three in the morning to tell her--and because of her profound grief, she went into labor at six am. At eight am, all of Mom's five children surrounded her bed and said goodbye. (She had waited for my brother to arrive from Denver, they do that sometimes). I said goodbye to my mom, drove a hour away, and said hello to my new grandson. I said, "Jenni, you will never believe this, but Mom waited for Kevin to get there". She smiled, in between tears, and said, "yes I would, because Turner waited for you!". I was there for her last child to help with the birth.

It was a sad and glorious day.

I'm so very sorry for your loss Natalie. If it is not too late I'd love to help you out with your project. I've lost my father (died when he was 37yr old - I was 2yrs old at the time), 3 of my sisters have died they were aged 7yrs, 15yrs & 43 yrs old when they passed. My sister & sister-in-law also had stillbirths when they were both 7mths pregnant.

My God Bless and comfort you and your husband during this sad time.

Hi Natalie. I have loved following your blog. I am so sorry about your loss. Not sure if it is too late to help, but we lost our son who was a week old (a year and a half ago). lwdegraff at gmail dot com. Wish the best for you and your family :)

A new fan of your blog and your work, adding my sincerest condolences (for both your son and your brother) to the long list of those already expressed. Lost father (age 50) unexpectedly when I was 17. I'm 30, but if you don't need more recent experiences, I'd be happy to participate. Jules5329@hotmail.com

I don't know if you still need help with this, but if you do I'm happy to. I had a baby girl who was stillborn.

I am late in commenting, but would be thrilled to help. On Dec. 23rd I lost a baby at 18 weeks gestation (I had to deliver him & got to meet him). It was during my grieving process that one of my sweet friends sent me a link to your blog, and I have been following ever since. You really are amazing! It was my 4th child. It is truly amazing the instant bond you share with your child through pregnancy...nearly undescribable. We share the same faith, which is what gets me through those tough days.

My husband lost his leg 2 years ago in an accident at work -- there was considerable grief for both of us. Then in the last 3 years we have lost 3 babies to miscarriage.

Almost 5 years ago I lost my grandfather, who happened to be my only father figure throughout my life, as well as my closest friend. I still cry when I think about it. I would be happy to help if you still want it.

Sorry about that double post. I was signed in under the wrong account. Whoops!

If its not too late, I'd like to participate. Three years ago this month my beloved dog Pedro died. He was a chihuahua. He was 13 years old and died of a dog attack. I had him since I was 9 years old (I was 21 when he died) and his death was SO HARD on me. I cried for days, cried harder than when my grandfather died the month before. I loved that dog and I never got to say goodbye. When I think about him I still tear up!

I would love to help in anyway. I had my son at 21 weeks gestation. He was too little to survive, yet I had hours to hold him, see his perfect body and love him. I miss him everyday. Its been about 1 1/2 years since he was born and I can't help but still think about him. You can check out my blog www.harrysinheaven.blogspot.com and email me at tamaw@msn.com with any questions you'd like me to answer. Grief, wow so hard!

This was awhile ago - but I have to comment because you wrote this on the two year anniversary of the day my son died.

He was stillborn the next day - February 27 2008.
